Lunt, from Rochester, Ill., grew up just 88 miles from the Illinois campus in Champaign, and was recruited by current coach and former Cowboys assistant Tim Beckman. Lunt was also recruited and offered scholarships by the coaches at the other potential destinations: Vanderbilt's James Franklin, Louisville's Charlie Strong and Tennessee's Butch Jones, the latter when he was at Cincinnati.
